Bobbi Jean Wright of Pine Grove was committed to the Schuylkill County Prison, Pottsville, on charges relating to the theft of a car on Dec. 15 in Pine Grove Township.
State police at the Schuylkill Haven barracks said the woman was arraigned on charges of theft of a motor vehicle, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and driving under the influence.
The incident happened when the woman stole a 2013 Mazda CX5 owned by Lacy Bock, also of Pine Grove, around midnight on the above date. Police said Wright removed the car keys that were on the table at Bock's residence and proceeded to take the vehicle without authorization.
Pollice said the vehicle was subsequently encountered later that morning on Interstate 81 by state police at Jonestown who took the woman into custody.
